Andrzej Marczewski's Summary

A web developer since 2000, I now manage the Intranet for around 9000 Capgemini UK employees as part of the web team.

Since 2010 I have been writing about all things gamification. This has lead to advising several small companies, self published a book on the subject and given several international talks about it. Now happy to be considered an SME within Capgemini. Gamification has become as much of a passion of mine as games have been all my life. The potential to improve almost any warp of life using the lessons we can learn from games and psychology is truly exciting.

Mix this with a love of social media, technology, SciFi and super heroes and I could be happily described as a bit of a geek!

Before all of this, In 2006 I started a side project called Yet Another Review Site to review video games and hardware. Developed with the idea that anyone should be able to have the chance to get into reviewing, it sees thousands of monthly visitors and has several editors and reviewers helping.
